Keane can become key figure at Aston Villa, believes Lambert

Friday 01 August 2014

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes that his new assistant Roy Keane can become a key asset for the club for the long-term, Sky Sports has reported.

Keane took up the position of assistant boss at Villa Park at the end of June, a role he will share with his Republic of Ireland duties, where he is No.2 to Martin O’Neill. He replaced Ian Culverhouse, who was dismissed by the club at the end of last season for an undisclosed disciplinary issue.


The 42-year-old brings managerial experience, having previously guided Sunderland to the Premier League in 2007 before cementing their place in the top-flight. He later had a spell in charge of Ipswich Town in the Championship, but he retains his reputation as a strict and no-nonsense figure, and Lambert believes he is often misjudged.


“I can really trust him. He is a really good football person – a top man. He has been great,’ said the Scot. “People shouldn’t get caught up with Roy Keane being this aggressive person.


“With the career he has had as a footballer – and people forget he had a lot of success as a football manager – what he says is really positive, especially to the young players. The good thing about Roy is he will say it as it is. I don’t think you can dress something up nicely when it is not. He will give you that honest assessment, but we are here to help everybody.’
